Henny Hughes Adds US Black-Type
Dual US Gr1-winning shuttler Henny Hughes (Hennessy-Meadow Flyer, by Meadowlake) added a US juvenile black-type success (& 4th individual stakes-winner) overnight when his colt She Digs Me (Henny Hughes-Stage Stop, by Valid Expectations) scored a 2-lengths victory in the US$70,000 Listed Tyro Stakes (5.5 furlongs) for 2YOs at Monmouth Park in New Jersey. She Digs Me (ridden by Elvis Trujillo for trainer Steve Asmussen) defeated front-running gelding Gentlemans Code (Proud Accolade-American Saint, by Saint Ballado) & fellow colt Team Six (Lion Heart-Most Beautiful, by More Than Ready). She Digs Me (a US$50,000 yearling at the 2010 Keeneland September Sale) now has 2 wins & a runner-up from 4 starts for US$88,670 earnings.
